the western world america with the arab world. but today, let's look what's happening in the united states. some people are telling -- >> we're going to have to -- >> don't vote because he's secretly a muslim. is there a war >> we're going to continue this discussion on our website. rula, thank you for joining me tonight. "the ed show" is up next. stay with us and watched this online. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. thank you for joining us. we have breaking news off the top tonight. i think this may be one of the biggest turns of the campaign. today a recording of mitt romney at a private fundraiser has surfaced. it reveals his frank, candid opinion of nearly half of the american population. it was recorded without romney's knowledge. and it was provided to a magazine as well as nbc news's own michael isikoff. here's part of the tape. >> romney didn't know that was being recorded. he was speaking to donors. the romney campaign has responded tonight. mitt romney wants to help all americans struggling in the obama economy as he has made known all yea
safely to us. i can never lose hope. >> please help me get home. 33 years of service to the united states deserves something. >> what gives you hope when you look at that video and see how he looks? >> i know when he looks determined, and he looked very determined to make it home safe and sound. >> her husband has missed walking one of his daughters down the aisle. another daughter's wedding is in february. >> his closet is still full of his clothes and i know it won't fit him anymore. and i haven't even touched his dresser. every morning i'm reminded that the nightmare continues. >> if he is able to see this what do you want the say directly to him? >> we will never, ever, ever stop looking for you. i miss you every day. love you. >> reporter: the u.s. has offered no new information about where levinson is and who's holding him. i spoke to a source with knowledge of the investigation who says "there is every reason to believe that levinson is alive and well." >>> police have found the body of a retired firefighter in nebraska. charlie dowd was traveling to visit family by amtrak when he
by extremist groups, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible? >> we always have to be careful repeating what we're told in classified settings, but basically, we were told something that goes along with its consistent with what the administration was saying publicly an that was that was a upon tan yous mob, got out of hand and there were unfortunate consequences. doesn't make much sense if you look at common sense. the fact it was 9/11. the fact it was a highly organized attack. that's before you get into the evidence it just didn't really add up. >> i remember asking that night. people o
their actions. it's never too early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values, that instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached, that the first response to the united states must be outraged for the sovereignty of our nation. >> trying to get it straight about this, that was the most terrible statement i've heard in a long time. he never sympathized with the mobs. he certainly never sympathized with someone taking the lives of americans and someone serving our government. his people -- not even his people, regular career service people in cairo without checking with washington simply put out a statement. they said that they could share that they are not part of this absolutely outrageous disrespect. >> i think -- i don't know what mark thinks, but that was to me a little painful and infuriating to watch. because i think mitt romney -- i'm going to give him enough credit for knowing that the president in this context didn't apologize for any
of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> and the president is on the case and sent two u.s. warships to the libyan coast and marines into tripoli and the fbi has opened an investigation into the attack that killed those four americans. contrast that with what mitt romney did today, campaigning in virginia. let's listen to him. >> as we watch the world today, sometimes it seems that we're at the mercy of events instead of shaping events and a strong america is to shape events and a strong america, by the way, depends on a strong military. this president has done something i find very hard to understand. ever since fdr, we've had the capacity to be engaged in two conflicts at once and he's saying, no, we're going to cut that back to only one conflict. >> joe klein, thank you. because you have a big picture look of this. what is mitt romney talking about that is relevant to aur our ability to deal with the group of militants in a place like benghazi that go against the embassy or going against the embassy and ambassadors of the embassy itself in care iro, be egypt. >>
president obama. >> well, president obama has been the president of the united states for the last four years and the best training to be the president of the united states is to be successfully the president of the united states, which he has been. >> then we should always do away with the second term and say, let's go on for eight years. do you agree that fundament fundamentally -- >> no. we wouldn't have these unemployment numbers and now 360,000 people have given up and if they stayed in the workforce we would have 8.4 unemployment and 47 million people on food stamps and heading for the largest rate of poverty in the last 50 years. household income is down $4,000 and how can anyone say that we are better off, and by the way, a number not talked about enough is the deficit is 7.6%. that is equal to greece. we have a deficit the same as greece. >> so taking that deficit number, and letting me put some other figures up for the audience. in the economy right now, and gas prices are high. we are $16 trillion in debt, and there is, there are 43 months of unemployment over 8%. how do you
and a white america and latino america and asian america. there's a united states of america. >> eight years after the keynote that launched his national career, four years after becoming the nation's first african-american nominee, tonight president barack obama accepts the nomination a second time. tonight the president makes his case for four more years. >> four more years. >> america needs four more years. >> tonight more from the first lady, vice president biden, caroline kennedy, the foo fighters? yes, the foo fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our co
that mitt romney cooked his goose as far as winning the presidency of the united states. i do. >> there are exactly 50 days until the presidential election and the wheels are coming off the campaign with reports of disastrous decision making and dissension among the campaign staff. tonight the romney campaign is reeling from the leak of a secretly recorded video of mitt romney speaking all too candidly at a campaign fund raiser where he managed to insult and lie about 150 million americans. the video features romney speaking at a fundraiser for wealthy donors. >> don't worry we'll take care of it. how are we going to do it in two months before the elections to convince everybody you've got to take care of yourself. there are 47% of the people vote for the by the way. 37% who are with him, who are dependent, who believe the government has the responsibility to care for them. who believe they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing. it's an entitlement and the government should give it to them and they will vote for this president no matter what. and the president starts
what communications they had leing up to september 11th, and, if, in fact, the united states state department knew in advance of the attack this ambassador felt like he was in danger of death or imminent demise from action and we didn't take action to secure him, that sends an appalling message to ambassadors aren't the world representing united states. >> if you requested them, can the committee subpoena the items if you don't get them? >> they can move forward and we have talked with members of the committee and the leadership. if the administration claims executive privilege or looks the other way we will continue to pursue it. we think the american people, the congress of the united states and certainly the family of craig stevens deserve an answer and deserve it now. >> you have been in briefings about this, what do you make about the narrative that we have heard from officials well it was linked to this video and it is still being investigated and we are not sure and today within the intelligence community, within the first 24 hours, they felt confident this was a terrorist a
, the united states is doing well and you know, i think that's a kind of typical no drama obama response. >> alex, is that what it is, the cool head of the president? >> i think there's something to that, but i think there's also a little more, and that is that this president's great strength is his intellect. he lives inside his head and his ideas. and part of it is he doesn't really feel your pain like paul's former boss, bill clinton, but he can memorize a study about it, you know. people are distant from this president. there's a certain sense of arrogance to this white house that they're just detached from it and i think that's a vulnerability. we have two elite candidates running for president. we have an academic elite, barack obama, running against financial elite. so the middle class is up for grabs here. >> alex, i want to ask you about something i saw you tweet over the weekend. you said when i see romney he looks like a candidate. when i see obama he looks like a president. this should not be hard to fix, so fix it. what do you mean? wasn't one of the governor's big selling p
on as people say, look, we're going up against the awesome power and the united states is a global power, but we will defend the honor of islam, defend the honor of the prophet. people sort of feel that this is protesting, not because they want to threaten american lives because they feel under assault. their red lines for what's acceptable speech are different from ours. i really don't see anything that is sort of different kind of anti-americanism. i don't see anything that's a different kind of violence. this feels to me like the kinds of things we have periodically seen throughout the middle east, often about an offense against islam which brings people out into the streets and then people go back into their homes. >> let's talk about foreign policy for a minute. this is what the president said in a recent interview. okay, so we don't have the sound, with you -- but he was asked in an interview with telemundo if egypt was an ally, and he said they are not an ally but they are not an enemy. is the response more about the attackers or the responses from the government, especially moham
to be the standard security in high risk consuls and embassies that the united states has around the world and that includes no low refile armored vehicles, the vehicles that have the tires that will continue to operate even if they're shot out. and other security measures were not there on the ground. general jack keane commented on the security that was missing here on fox. >> there's been a pattern of attacks all through the summer. so we have a pat he tern of specific aggressive attacks and finally, our consulate is attacked. now, that's a movement that's doing that and that is coordinated. i don't think any film, even 9/11 maybe the day they chose to do it because of its significance, but that's certainly people who are out of power, there are moderates in power in libya, they want it undermine that government and foreign powers assisting that government are the target. common sense will tell you that our security for that ambassador and that consulate was totally inadequate. and after we do that assessment and we're putting the proper security in place, rest assured whatever it looks
the united states and israel that had the prime minister at h his wit's end. what really happened? a key person in that room. and a rare virus has killed three people at yosemite national park and tonight an alarming warning to nearly 30,000 other people. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone. big ben getting ready to go to bat. the man who has to save america was at a game casually dressed. a pair of jeans. got his hat on. but he always wears a belt. i'm betting his mind is racing. next week, ben might unleash the beast of hundreds of billions of dollars to america. why? well, today's awful jobs report, it was a measly 96,000 jobs created last month. ben bernanke has called the job crisis in america a grave concern. we all know that our elected leaders in washington so far have not done much about it lately. >> i think what we've had lately is because you've had a lack of leadership on fiscal policy. >> i just want to pause there, paul ryan. a lack of leadership on fiscal policy. you happen to be the budget committee chairman. wasn't it the two of you that snubbed simpson/bowl
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the dramatic highs and lows in the race for the white house. now in full swing with the conventions over in both campaigns laser focused on november. the spotlight had barely cooled for president obama's big night when the latest unemployment report cast a shadow over the democratics' post-convention glow. mitt romney called it the hangover to the party in charlotte. the labor department says u.s. employers added only 96,000 jobs in august, fewer than expected, although the jobless rate did fall to 8.1%. our chief business correspondent, ali velshi, is joining us now to take a closer look inside the numbers. ali, the unemployment rate went down, but that's not necessarily a positive development. explain what's going on. >> you know, i've said for years that it's just easier to look at the number of jobs created or lost as opposed to the unemployment rate. and i'll explain that to you in a second. but the number of jobs added in august was 96,000. now, if you look at the pattern o
countries. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. >> that's exactly how it's airing there and these subtitles you see below are in urdu. the state department says the ad cost $70,000 to run on 14 different channels in pakistan which reach 80% to 90% of the country in prime time for five days. this is a major blitz on the air waves. to give you some context, what a bet the u.s. is making on this, to do the same thing in the united states, to reach 80% to 90% of the population in prime time would cost millions and millions and millions of dollars. just one ad on one night in this country costs $135,000 on average. all in to have that impact in the u.s. would be at least $7 million and could be multiples of that. the bottom line, the obama administration is all in on convincing pakistanis that the u.s. government is not bad. it's a complicated relationship and i
obama goes before the u.n. with a call for justice. but why isn't the united states any closer to getting it? >>> gop candidate mitt romney got another compliment from president clinton today. this time, though -- maybe not much help. >>> and it's been about 24 hours. and nfl fans are still outraged by a call made by a replacement ref in last night's packer-seahawks game. even scott walker pleads he wants the refs back. and hey, they're in a union! what will it take? let's go "outfront." ♪ >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, obama vows he'll get the killers. today the president spent 24 minutes of his half-hour speech to the united nations talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to est
with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basically broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this could be a bit of a surprise coming next week, where mitt romney mayb

not fit under u.s. law. we have very strict laws protect our free speech rights in the united states and making a controversial film even if it attacks a certain religion can't be prosecuted under free speech u.s. laws an not a hate crime. >>> you just brought up there are laws against someone running into a theater and yelling fire, to incite something. this man had to have known if you put out this type of video that that would incite a melee, attacks, something. could it bettacked up der that provision? >> youaise a good point. it goes that point directly. i'm sure when he made the film, he was trying to be provocative and trying to anger those over 1 billion muslims worldwide. however, yelling fire in a theater, that's a crime but not's not an expression of a political view or of an art form. on the other hand, making this vicious film, an attack on a religion is a form of artistic expression. we may hate it, we may disagree with it. what makes us americans under the first amendment, we can express ourselves in any way we want in this country as long as it's political artistic an

"outfront" tonight, senator bob corker, a republican, was briefed on the attacks today, including secretary of state hillary clinton and director of intelligence. i spoke with him a couple of moments before the show began and asked him about that briefing. >> i will just tell you, the briefing today was an absolute not event. no new information. what you just carried on cnn regarding the interview with the prime minister there is information that was not shared during this briefing and i can tell you it was really, people on both sides of the aisle, i think left there feeling like they had not learned one thing additionally about what happened. so i think all of us just want to get to the bottom of this. you know, we're all concerned and again, today, was basically a one hour filibuster and i do hope that sometime soon, we'll find a real

and in some cases, our interests are actually mutual with the united states and iran, so i think it is an important country without -- i think they've had a problem for many, many years with the west. particularly with the united states. where they believe, whether it's true or not, but they believe that the u.s. is out to get them. out to destroy the regime and overthrow the regime. even this recent delisting of the opposition group that was in iraq, claim is another example of the u.s. only interested in changing the regime. we have many, many issues between the u.s. and iran over the 30 years, the nuclear age has gotten to the point now where we have harsh, harsh sanctions hurting the people, the economy, everyone. probably not the regime so much. >> not as tough as they should, at least fm our reporting. if you were really trying to shut things down. >> well, they're not that lenient. i think people find a way to get around. >> leaky. >> sorry. but i think that right now, with these sanctions, iran would like to come kind of f agreement with the west, but they want sanctions

of the united states. >> president obama said that he believes in redistribution. >> we're all smarter than that, aren't we? you know it's not so simple. taxes, entitlement, debt, all three of these things must work together and keeping the status quo on all three of these things is impossible. the parties blame each other, and this is about the only thing they are 100% right on because they both took us here, and this is not an issue that gets settled in less than 50 days. 12.5 million people are still out of work. economic growth alone won't save us. it's forecast to only slowly increase over the next few years. will cain is a cnn contributor and ban barber is a graduate scholar in the city of new york. romney's comments caught on hidden camera divided the country into two groups, makers and takers. i refuse to believe the campaign is between winner take owl and karl marx. >> where we try to place these candidates on the spectrum. here's the sin that mitt romney committed dividing americans into 47 versus 53. economic conservatism applies to 100%, making the rich better off, not the poor bette
if this is going to silence his partisan critic in the united states senate who would like to keep control of the united states senate? i don't think so. >> will it even silence republicans? because some have said that no matter what romney releases, that this is not going to end. >> you know, i think that this whole tax release thing is basically a media invention, a partisan invention. he had released two years. now he's released three years. i don't think the public is interested. gallup yesterday released a poll that was really stunning, that the u.s. trust of the media is at an all-time low. 60% of americans have little to no trust in the media, particularly now that we're going into the election season, because the media -- we're chasing these silly stories like the tax returns or the hidden videos and we're not getting to the meat and the substance of the different candidates, of mitt romney and president obama, their policies, whether they're successful or not, and what that means for the future of this country. we're focusing on the wrong things. >> all right, well, let's get back

states or not friendly to the united states. at both of these installations there could have been classified information for all we know, correct? >> well, i think almost undoubtedly there's been classified information lost. you simply can't burn out of a consulate like that in a minute's notice. you need thermite grenades to blow through the safes, you need to destroy the hard drives. when you're under fire, no one can do that. there was no safe rooms to do that. there was no oxygen in those safe rooms. there was no way to keep the temperature down. the people in that consulate did exactly what they should have done and that was get out of there as fast as they can, and not get killed. now, frankly, i would like to see the fbi's investigation on this simply because it's the least politicized agency in washington, and the fbi would come out and tell us exactly what happened there. number one, i would like to find out if those mortars in fact hit the annex as it's been described. also, were the assaults, the people that assaulted the consulate using 12.5 machine guns. that tells us
